How to Link to Internet Domains in Exchange 2000
Posted on 2004-03-31
A company has asked me to install and configure an Exchange 2000 sp3 server. This server is located behind a cisco pix firewall. It has a private ip address. Its function is to send and deliver email throughout the company and the world. On friday i will be transferring DNS authority to their ISP. We will have 2 mx records for fault tolerance.
I've decided on the following naming format:
MX my_domain.com. smart host1.<isp_domain>.com. 30
MX my_domain.com. smart host2.<isp_domain>.com. 20
MX my_domain.com. exchange.my_domain.com. 10
A exchange.my_domain.com. xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Is this correct?
Also where do I configure the Exchange server name to be exchange.my_domain.com?
Appreciate the help,
